About the property

1600 Sq Feet 3 Bdrm, 1 Bath, Full Kitchen With Washer/Dryer, Daylight Basement.

A stone walkway leads down from the parking area to a large covered patio with a private entrance to this very nice 3 bedroom 1 bath daylight 1600 sq. ft. walkout basement. The Vacation rental is the downstairs part of the house only. The main family room has 9 foot ceilings with beautifully finished wooden beams and lots of wood trim and wainscot. It has a full kitchen (newly remodeled) with an electric stove, microwave, frig, and washer and dryer. The 3 bedrooms all have comfortable queen beds and are decorated in mostly Montana style. The beautifully stained concrete floor is heated and very comfortable to walk on and there are area rugs in all the rooms.

About Steve and Lori Pleasants

Steve and Lori Pleasants moved to Montana in 1993 to raise their 3 boys and to open a chiropractic office in downtown Whitefish. We have always enjoyed a country lifestyle and had horses, cows, and chickens on the property while we homeschooled our boys. We built the basement to be a comfortable place for our boys, and the large family room became a gathering place for them, their 3 cousins and many friends.

Steve and Lori Pleasants purchased this house in 1998

Great place for a family ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

The rental had a great kitchen for cooking, the bedrooms were clean, quiet and attractively decorated and the main room was excellent for hanging out. Only drawback to the rental was one bathroom. Steve was great... he made sure the shoveling and plowing was done during one of the winter's biggest storms so we could make it up to the mountain.

Incredible is all I can say! Perfect Christmas vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Pleasant home in Whitefish was perfect in every way. The location is tucked away in a quiet spot but close to shopping and restaurants in town. The enormous backyard afforded lots of sledding fun. The home is clean as a whistle, the beds are super comfortable, and the floor plan layout is very roomy. So many little niceties about this place, from the individual cosmetic mirrors and floor fans and mini heaters for each room (for those that like white noise to fall asleep to), to the little table in the corner of the living room to accommodate laptop computers, to the exquisitely comfortable bedding, to plenty of comfy chairs for all. I could go on and on. It's a 10 in my book and I am 100% comfortable in recommending this home to anyone desiring a getaway spot, whether winter or summer.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Immaculately clean, prime location, peaceful, comfortable, well-stocked with everything you might need (toothpaste, etc). We will not only return someday, we also plan to recommend this beautiful accommodation to friends and family! And to top it off, a ping pong/pool table to boot! The fire pit was awesome, although a fire ban was in effect. We sat there and visited and watched the wildlife. Thanks to Steve and Lori for providing such an awesome VRBO!

Great place, lots of room, great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The location worked out well even though lots of activities were in east Glacier. The rooms were spacious and clean and perfect for a family. We had space for together time, and space for individuals as needed. Thanks for sharing your space with us!

Very spacious and comfortable with all needed amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family visit in a very comfortable house. All the amenities you need with some extras. We enjoyed playing pool and ping pong each day. Came back each evening to make family meals. It allowed for a lot more family time. I would highly recommend this home rental. Lori was very friendly and hospitable! Thank You for the wonderful memories we created here!

Whitefish is a year around resort community primarily known for its local ski resort Whitefish Mountain Resort, known by locals as Big Mountain. It provides great uncrowded skiing in the winter as well as many summer activities such as hiking and zip lines. There are also many other winter activities available such as snowmobiling, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, ice skating, and dog sled riding.

Our close proximity to Glacier National Park is by far the biggest summer time attraction to our area. It provides spectacular mountain scenery as well as wildlife viewing, hiking, backpacking, fishing, rafting, and swimming, you name it.

Whitefish Lake has a great local beach for swimming and sun bathing and is a popular recreational boating lake. Many other lakes, rivers and streams provide boating rafting and fishing opportunities that are endless.

The town of Whitefish is a popular destination for many reasons. Our family friendly atmosphere has a wide variety of dining including many excellent restaurants. The small resort town atmosphere also provides an active night life with several bars, casinos and nightclubs. Shopping is also popular with many clothing stores, galleries, sporting goods, and jewelry stores. Whitefish Lake Golf course provides 36 holes of top notch golfing and The Wave Aquatic Center provides indoor swimming and water slide for the kids when the weather is not so great. It also has a large fitness area and all the amenities of a modern fitness club.

Other activities in town include a twin cinema as well as two live theatres.

In addition to all the outdoor activities, the surrounding area has many attractions for kids and adults, including a water slide park, live bear park, house of mystery, and an outdoor maze and activity center, and many whitewater rafting and horseback riding facilities'.
